Old Gold denied victory chance
CARMARTHEN Town claimed a fine point at Prestatyn — but the game ended in controversy.
In the dying seconds, Town had a chance to score with two players breaking clear, only for the referee to blow for full time.
"I've never seen that before," said Carmarthen manager Mark Aizlewood.
"To say I was very disappointed with that decision would be an understatement.
"The only time I can remember that happening before was years ago when Clive Thomas blew his whistle as a corner was taken and the ball was in the air on its way into the goal.
"But that must not take anything away from the players.
"I was absolutely delighted with the team's performance.
"They created many, many opportunities in what was a dominant display.
"When you look back on our previous recent visits to Bastion Gardens you will see 6-1 and 7-1 defeats and for us to gain a point against the Welsh Cup winners was a fine effort."
Town went behind with eight minutes remaining when Lee Hunt netted for the hosts.
But the visitors equalised through Kyle Bassett's long-range free-kick just two minutes later.
Aizlewood added: "A point at Prestatyn is a very good point to get.
"However, at half-time I was looking at getting all three points as we dominated the play.
"With eight minutes left we made a defensive slip which gave them a goal. Then I would have settled for a point. Kyle's superb free-kick two minutes later got us the goal we deserved so I had to be satisfied."
